ELGA LabWater, a division of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, says its new Purelab Chorus laboratory water systems offer an unmatched degree of usability and flexibility. They allow customers to assemble a bespoke water system, fully optimised to fit the application, budget and laboratory configuration.
Purelab Chorus systems are suitable for use in laboratories with limited space as well as those that must retain precise control over dispensing methods and storage options.
The Chorus range includes three water purification systems: Chorus 1 for ultrapure Type I+/I; Chorus 2 for pure Type II; and Chorus 3 for general pure grade Type III water.
Chorus 1 is said to produce the highest inorganic water purity available by applying advanced PureSure deionisation, which removes even trace amounts of those ions that could otherwise interfere with ultrasensitive analysis methods such as HPLC, Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) atomic emission spectrometry or ICP mass spectrometry. Constant real-time total organic carbon monitoring provides confidence in the organic purity of the water. In addition, the employment of integrated ultrafiltration/microfiltration, full spectrum UV treatment and full recirculation guarantees the highest organic purity of the water at the point of use, with complete removal of endotoxins, proteins, nucleases and particulates. This makes it suitable for even the most sensitive of applications.
Chorus 2 is for those applications requiring reliable, high purity water with good organic, inorganic and microbial control, but where ultrapure water is not essential. These include electrophysiology, histology and general chemistry.
Chorus 3 offers the lowest cost of ownership and provides high flow rates of up to 120 litres/hr, all while being simple to operate and easy to maintain. The smart system has an auto rinse function to maintain purity during periods of low use, offers the option of CO2 removal and is designed to allow flow rate to be easily upgraded to meet future demands. As such, it is optimised for all the workhorse applications of the lab, where purity must be effectively balanced against speed to provide the most effective water supply for general use.
A consistent supply of pure water is essential to anyone running laboratory assays
As well as ensuring the desired level of water purity, the Purelab Chorus systems work seamlessly with ELGA’s Halo dispensing solutions, all of which can be positioned independently from the water purification system for maximum flexibility and ensure that laboratory space is used effectively. The flow is adjustable from drop-by-drop up to two litres/min, allowing users to fill their containers as slowly or as fast as is needed.
ELGA’s portfolio of storage reservoirs completes the range, offering 15, 30 and 60 litres of compact storage.
Matt Boeck, Research Market Product Manager of ELGA LabWater, commented: 'A consistent supply of pure water is essential to anyone running laboratory assays – without it results are rarely trustworthy and reproducible. ELGA is 100% focused on producing equipment that delivers reliable and precise water purification, litre after litre, year after year. As such, our customers rely on us to safeguard their water supply so they can focus on what matters most to them – their experiments and results.'
